My droid from ebay will arrive tomorrow. I have been readying the forums for a week now and understand the basics of Root, Custom Recovery Consoles, Nandroid, Kernels, Overclocking, 2.01 vs 2.1, etc. But I want to be ready when my phone arrives tomorrow. I am not looking for how too's... I am looking for why/why-not's.
This is my work phone so it HAS TO BE rock stable. I caught a lot of crap running all my custom i910 roms if they ever hampered my ability to use the phone for work. I am looking for advice on which combination of roms/themes/kernels/overclocking etc would best fit my needs. Here is what I am looking for.
1.) I would like modest overclockability while keeping it cool.
2.) No need for launcher2 (buggy from what i have read)
3.) No need for Live Wallpaper (I like race cars better than show cars anyway)
4.) Some of the nice HD video recording and Youtube hacks would be nice.
5.) Some of the 2.1 handy apps (gallery, etc.)
6.) Multitouch if it is stable
7.) Wifi Tethering
8.) Would like it to run cool with long battery (don't we all)
Basically I am looking for a solid stripped down performer with stability and reliability in mind. The reason I left Winmo was because of lockups and restarts. What are your thoughts. BB_1.1? BB_0.4? DM_1.0? SS_1.0.2? Combination of parts from each? any help would be appreciated.
